On Now
Coming Up
  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Raji probable, Nelson questionable, Kuhn out

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 26, 2012 – 2:29 pm

After missing the last two games with an ankle injury, NT B.J. Raji didn’t practice on Friday but is listed as probable on the final injury report for Sunday’s game. Raji practiced in full pads on Thursday and appears on track to play.

“The plan coming off of Monday was to practice him on Thursday in pads and give him Friday to recover,” Mike McCarthy said. “Everything looks good. If nothing changes here in the next 48 hours, I feel very confident with B.J.”

Meanwhile, WR Jordy Nelson is scheduled to test his hamstring injury on Sunday morning and he’ll be a game-time decision. He’s listed as questionable. FB John Kuhn has been ruled out with his hamstring injury.

All the other players on the injury report who practiced this week are listed as probable. That includes RB James Starks, who missed Thursday’s practice with an illness but returned on a limited basis Friday. LB Nick Perry and CB Sam Shields did not practice all week and have been ruled out.

If Nelson is unable to play, it could open the door for WR Jarrett Boykin to get some significant snaps. Boykin has played only a handful of snaps so far this season after being inactive on gameday for the first five weeks.

Ironically, Boykin’s first major action could come against Jacksonville, a team that cut him in the spring, which led to him getting a tryout with the Packers.

“I would say there’s a little extra grind, but that’s not my main focus, going out there trying to prove (anything) to them,” Boykin said. “I’m just focusing on going out there and helping this team win.”

Other news & notes from McCarthy’s final press conference of the week:

–LS Brett Goode has signed a long-term contract extension, which puts all three of the Packers’ specialists (K Mason Crosby, P Tim Masthay and Goode) under contract for the foreseeable future. Goode joined the team in 2008, one year after Crosby and two years before Masthay.

“You look at the battery, punter, kicker and snapper, that’s a very important group,” McCarthy said. “They spend most of their time together. The personality of the three guys is very important. They lean on one another, they help correct one another. I think they’re very honest as far as their time together professionally and personally. They’re a good group.

“The nice part about it is you look at their age group and they still have time to grow and improve.”

–McCarthy said neither LB Frank Zombo nor TE Andrew Quarless would be activated from PUP for Sunday’s game. Both players  have been practicing for the last two weeks, and they have one week left before a decision has to be made to either activate them, release them, or place them on injured reserve for the season.

McCarthy made it sound as though Zombo is the closest to being game-ready. He said Quarless is still experiencing some “soreness” in his surgically repaired knee, which is normal in the recovery process.

The other player on PUP, T Derek Sherrod, is still not ready to practice and could be headed to IR for the season.

“I know he’s frustrated, but we all saw the injury,” McCarthy said of Sherrod, who broke multiple bones in his leg in Week 15 last season in Kansas City. “It was a serious injury, and definitely something we’re not going to rush back. But he’s not just ready yet.”
